SafeRides of Westport is a reality due to a group of dedicated Staples High School students who set out to create a program with kids_ã_ safety in mind. Ô_SafeRides of Westport focuses on keeping kids safe in a variety of circumstances when either their parents or another responsible party is not available to drive them home. Ô_The main purpose of SafeRides is to reduce drunk driving accidents and save lives! Ô_We hope to provide teenagers with an alternative to driving after drinking, no questions asked. Ô_While we in no way condone teen drinking, we do acknowledge that it does happen. Ô_In addition to not drinking and driving, we have found that there are a variety of reasons that kids might need a are red home ranging from their ride left them at a party to a parent returning from a night out and needing to get the babysitter home. Ô_Beyond increased safety in Westport, SafeRides also allows high school teens and adults to become involved in the community through volunteer work.
